I know this blog post is supposed to be about my interview, but instead it is going to be about how hard it was to schedule my interview.
It all started when my mom asked a friend if she knew a vet. She did and gave my mom the email address of Dr. Nance. I emailed Dr. Marla Nance on May 17, 2019 to ask her for an interview. She emailed back saying, “Yes, I would be willing to help you and do your interview on Capstone.”
Then we waited and waited and she still had not emailed back and it was getting close to the due date of Wednesday May 29, 2019. We have emailed her 5 times and still have heard nothing back. My mom also called her. So, my mom and I decided to go to find a new vet surgeon to interview. We went to my dogs vet, Lisa Hodes, also known as Dr. Hodes. We emailed Dr. Hodes and said this: “Dear Dr. Hodes, I have a project called Capstone and it is on vet surgery for my school project. I need an interview with a vet and I was wondering if I could interview you. If you agree to the interview, you can email us back. Thanks Stella.” We are still waiting for an answer.
Update May 28:
At 5 pm, Ms. Edwards called with the name and number of her vet, Dr Zuckerman.
My mom was about to call him when she saw Dr. Nance emailed back! We are going to see 2 surgeries and do the interview on May 29 at 9.30am..
Update May 29:
We went to see Dr. Nance. She showed us around the hospital and she let us see a dog spay! The hospital was super fun and we had lots of questions. My favorite part was seeing all the dogs at the hospital and seeing Dr. Nance do her dog spay.
For the interview, I asked Dr. Nance questions like: “Why did you want to become a veterinarian surgeon? And What sort of professional development do you need to do to maintain your license as a veterinary surgeon?” My mom recorded it on voice memos and we got lots of good and interesting answers from this interview.
